The victim, identified as Manvi Raj who is from the Bhagalpur district of Bihar, registered a case against Tanveer Akhtar, a resident of Ranchi, at the Versova police station in Mumbai.
Officials said that the case has been transferred to the Ranchi police in Jharkhand for further investigation as the alleged incident took place in Ranchi.

The model has provided evidence to the police with details of her Instagram chats with Tanveer, in which the accused had said that he was going abroad.
According to the FIR, the victim met Tanveer in 2021 and he had introduced himself as Yash but later it came out that his real name was Tanveer Khan.
She alleged that on March 21, 2021, Tanveer secretly clicked her nude photos during a Holi party.
